"It was a quiet Sunday morning when bullets started flying inside the 41st Precinct. Our officers handled it with heroism and extraordinary skill, showing the true caliber of the men and women who serve in the NYPD," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday. "Thank God our officers are alive … This was a premeditated assassination attempt against New York's Finest. It was also an attack on ALL New Yorkers and everything we believe in."

Following last weekend's shootings, the Sergeants Benevolent Association, without providing evidence, blamed de Blasio for the attacks and what they said was an increase in negative public sentiment toward law enforcement officers.

"Mayor DeBlasio [sic], the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you," the SBA tweeted. "We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you. NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you. This isn't over, Game on!"

Freddi Goldstein, a spokeswoman for de Blasio, called the statement from the SBA "absolutely reprehensible."
